Lori Vallow flew out of Idaho the day before her brother attempted to shoot Tammy Daybell and returned to the state the day after Daybell died – all within weeks of Vallow marrying Daybell’s husband, KSAZ-TV reports.
Vallow is accused of killing her two children – Joshua “JJ” Vallow and Tylee Ryan – and conspiring to kill her former husband.
The records show that Lori Vallow booked a flight for Oct. 8, 2019, from Idaho to Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. The following day, Alex Cox, Vallow’s brother, attempted to shoot Daybell, who was married to doomsday author Chad Daybell.
Investigators determined that Vallow flew back to Idaho on Oct. 20, one day after Tammy Daybell died. Vallow and Chad Daybell were married just weeks later.
The emails also show that Cox flew from Phoenix to Columbia within days of the shooting death of Vallow’s former husband, Charles Vallow, on July 11, 2019.
Police would later allege that Cox shot Charles Vallow. Cox died months later, which a medical examiner determined was from natural causes. However, at the time of his death, his wife would not give any statements about what happened.
“This is the case that keeps on giving,” one of the emails states, according to the television station.
Also included in the documents was a photo of JJ Vallow that police had recovered from Lori Vallow’s iCloud account, which could be the last known photo taken of her son. The image was dated Sept. 22, 2019. One day later, two images in Vallow’s iCloud account appear to show ammunition at a gun store in Idaho.
Police later performed a welfare check on the boy and have alleged that Vallow lied about where he was located. The remains of the children were later uncovered in Chad Daybell’s backyard.
Vallow’s prosecution is on hold until she is ruled competent to stand trial, the television station reports.
